Oh and the new Planetarium in Greenwich Park, next to the Royal Observatory is great, the view from the top of the hill is spectacular and you can have a mosey round the Royal naval College while you're there.

"1) Where to eat?

Say I want a really good meal in London but don't want to break the bank. Where should I go?"

What's your definition of breaking the bank? Are you talking about good places to eat each day, or a one-off special?

Tubby does tours? What kind?

He's a bona fide London guide, which almost rhymes.

On restaurants:

Latium (http://www.latiumrestaurant.com/) on Berners Street is probably my favourite London restaurant - £28.50 for three courses, always a great meal.

Lemonia is further afield (Primrose Hill) but decent value as a non-fancy, family-friendly Greek Cypriot restaurant. Needs to be booked as it's always busy.

The Chancery on Cursitor Street used to be very good value for money as they had a semi-permanent 50% deal on weekdays, but it seems to have ended.

http://www.london-eating.com/ is a very good website for finding restaurants. Take some reviews with a pinch of salt but it's generally reliable.

Your visit also coincides with the London marathon (on the 13th), which I think is a great thing to go and watch. You can cheer on Rick Derris and Malc.

If you're going to the design museum you could pop upstairs to Blueprint which is an ex conran restaurant with fantastic views of the thames.

For a great indian meal consider mirch masalla on Commercial Road. It's cheap and brilliant. Take your own booze.

The Tower Bridge exhibition is a good thing to do if you are interested in how the victorians overengineered everything with the consequence that it still works.

I like the London Museum and a boat trip from the Tower to Greewich is always nice. If you walk up the hill to the obeservatory there is a nice little planetarium.

I was going to say Sir John Soanes' House, the Inns of Court, the Courtauld Institute (free on Monday mornings) and the Tate Modern - all brilliant. My favourite place to visit in London is the Imperial War Museum, where I can spend hours and hours.

For eating, try Le Deuxième on Long Acre.
